I have heard Thom explain the gratuated income tax on several ocassions. Saying something to the extent that a wealthy person pays the same on his first $15,000 of income as a poor person does. Basically, that each bracket is independent of the next and all persons are taxed the same for the income one makes within each bracket. Is this really how it works? I'm looking for information on this, but I don't seem to find it anywhere. Not doubting the guy at all, just looking for some other source on the matter. Thanks!
